 In News

Hey there all of you Tri-County Pest Control fans and welcome to our newest Wacky Pest Wednesday – where we will share with you all some wild facts we have come across from the pest world we have been entrenched in for more than three decades.

Today’s Wacky Wednesday Pest Fact focuses on springtails. Enjoy!

Springtails are named for their spring-like structure that affords them the ability jump several inches. They are what we call nuisance pests that glom on to areas of high moisture. They also possess a special protein that acts like anti-freeze, most springtails are able to survive in cold winter temperatures  – unlike some other pests.

And we only thought “anti-freeze” existed for use in automobiles!
